Don’t swear at the referee. And don’t even be thought to swear at the ref. This is the lesson hooker and captain of the Northampton Saints, Dylan Hartley, learnt this past weekend in In the British Premier Rugby League final between the Saints and Leicester Tigers. Hartley was warned earlier in the match to clean up his language and when the ref thought he hadn’t. sent him off with red card. The Tigers won 37-17. Hartley now faces an 11 week ban and cannot go on tour to Australia with the British Lions.
